The University of Dallas will enhance cross-disciplinary scientific investigations offered to undergraduate students through teaching and research using a new scanning electron microscope (SEM).  The SEM will strengthen a cross-disciplinary initiative between the biology, chemistry and physics departments.  An existing lab course, Integrated Science Laboratory: The Color Blue, will be expanded to investigate nanoscale structures that cause blue coloration.  In addition, a new upper-level course in materials science will be developed and implemented in 2020.  The SEM will also enhance current undergraduate research in the areas of insect morphology characteristics and metal oxide photocatalytic properties.  This SEM will offer new opportunities for the university’s expanding science student body and faculty in scientific areas that span several disciplines.
